4. Contest Objective. The object of the Contest is to earn as many points as possible by correctly predicting the winner of each dual men's or women's (each a "Category") tennis match in the Tournament, from the opening matches through to the final championship match, and to predict the match score of the final match as well as the elapsed duration of the final match (in minutes).

Contestant may only make one (1) Prediction per Match. A Prediction needs to be correct in order to earn Contest points. The points accrued for each correct Prediction are as follows: first round Match = 1 point, second round Match = 2 points, round of 16 Match = 4 points, quarter-final Match = 8 points, semi-final Match = 16 points and final Match = 32 points. The maximum possible point score in each Category is 192.

Any attempted form of entry other than as described herein is void.

6. Determination of Winners. At the conclusion of the Tournament, the top eligible entrants in each Category with the highest number of points achieved will, subject to verification and compliance with the terms of these rules, be declared the Prize Winners (see Prizes section below for details). An entrant who enters both Categories may win a prize in both Categories. Within a Category, if two or more eligible entrants tie for a prize, the following tie breaker criteria will be used: the eligible tied entrant who comes closest to correctly predicting the match score of the final match will be declared the winner; In the event of a further tie, the eligible tied entrant who comes closest to predicting the duration of the final match (in minutes) will be declared the winner. In the unlikely event of a further tie, the winner will be randomly selected from amongst the remaining tied entrants by Sponsor. All decisions of Sponsor will be final.

8. Private Pools. Sponsor permits any person or group to set up their own private bracket (each a "Private Pool", collectively the "Private Pools"), in order to compete in a discrete bracket directly against friends, co-workers, family members, etc. To create a Private Pool, an entrant may click on the "create a private pool" link on the Entry registration page and thereafter follow the instructions to set up their Private Pool and invite persons via email with a web link to compete in their Private Pool. Private Pools are provided for entertainment value only, and Sponsor is not responsible for the administration of any Private Pool, nor for awarding any prize(s) in connection with any Private Pool. Entrants to a Private Pool must follow the same entry procedures as described in Section 5 above, and are subject to the following sections of these Official Rules: Section 3 and Sections 9, 10, 12, 13 and 14. The creator of a Private Pool may opt to modify the point scoring system of the Contest as described in Section 4, and may create their own scoring system for their Private Pool. An entrant to a Private Pool will have the option to have the predictions they submit for that Private Pool carry over to become their Predictions in this Contest by clicking the check box to submit their predictions to the Official Contest (or Main Pool), thus, provided they meet all eligibility criteria in Sections 1 and 2, gaining full Entry into this Contest. However, if they so choose, they may enter a Private Pool without gaining Entry into the Contest - in such case their predictions will not enable them to compete for the Prizes in Section 7 above. All persons creating a Private Pool warrant and represent that they will adhere to all applicable local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation those governing contests and sweepstakes, and will indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor from any and all claims arising from any Private Pool, including without limitation for their improper administration of a Private Pool or their failure to award any prize purportedly offered in connection with any Private Pool. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may cancel or suspend any Private Pool that does not fully comply with this Section 8.
